Saturday, March 2, 8 p.m.: Brooklyn Jewish Art Gallery at Congregation Kol Israel (Brooklyn)

Michael Croland will give a multimedia presentation about his new book, Punk Rock Hora, chronicling his 13 years covering edgy Jewish culture. This book talk will include songs from a variety of Jewish punk artists to show how they’re using punk rock as a vehicle to embrace, express, and explore their Jewish identity. There’ll be a special focus on punk covers of “Hava Nagila” and hora medleys, as well as exciting hora stories, for a punk rock party vibe! Michael will also do a Q&A and sell books afterward. This event is part of a month-long “Jews and Rock” art exhibit and will feature a concert by the Jewish punk band Moshiach Oi! For more information and to buy tickets, click here.
